To James Southall WilsonMar. 3, 1931UVa 

Is leaving soon for California, where her mother is an invalid. Cannot serve on organizing committee on southern writers. Use of her name in such a way would bring other demands on her time.   Willa Cather   [Stout #1040]

To Carroll WilsonMarch 18, 1926Drew U (Adams 168.1) 

In response to his inquiry, insists that Georgine Milmine is a very real person and did a good deal of work collecting information for the history [The Life of Mary Baker G. Eddy, first published in McClure's January 1907 through June 1908; published in book form as The Life of Mary Baker G. Eddy and the History of Christian Science by Georgine Milmine, New York: Doubleday, Page, & Co., 1909]. Milmine did not really write it, but four or five people, including herself, worked on it in the editorial room of McClure's. Does not wish to be identified with the book, for was never interested in it except editorially and shared the work with others. Mr. Smith was not there at the time, if memory serves, so he must have heard his stories from somebody else. Please keep this information quiet. Wilson's profession assures his prudence, one would think.   Willa Cather
